"The true story of the Umbrian Thursday night supper club -- and the five extraordinary women who meet in the hills above Italy's Orvieto to cook, eat and tell the stories of their incredible lives. Every week on a Thursday evening, a group of four Italian rural women gather in a derelict stone house in the hills above Italy's Orvieto. There -- along with their friend, Marlena -- they cook together, sit down to a beautiful supper, drink their beloved local wines, and talk. Here, surrounded by candle light, good food and friendship, Miranda, Ninucia, Paolina and Gilda tell their life stories of loves lost and found, of ageing and abandonment, of mafia grudges and family feuds, and of cherished ingredients and recipes whose secrets have been passed down through the generations. Around this table, these five friends share their food and all that life has offered them -- the good and the bad."--
